Company director report

KUBER AUTO GENERAL FINANCE & LEASING LIMITED DIRECTOR'S REPORT To THE MEMBERS Your Directors have pleasure in presenting the Fifth Annual Report on the Business and operations of the company together with audited Accounts for the year ended 31 st March 1998. OPERATIONS The last Financial year witnessed slow industrial growth, compounded by a severe liquidity crunch,high cost of funds and sluggishness in the capital market. ln this financial and economic scenario of the recent past, the performance of the most NBFCs was adverselY affected. The pervasive downward slide in Indian economy in general and NBFCs in particular in the financial year 97-98 and prevailing market conditions have a telling effect on the performance of the company. The poor results are due to new regulatory framework brought out by the Reserve Bank of India in the beginning of 1998. In a nut shell,the Reserve Bank of india has introduced prudential norms, capital adequacy requirement, linking of quantum d deposit mobilization with credit rating, stricter norms for provisioning and income recognition etc. Following the issue of these guidelines, your directors decided neither to accept nor to renew existing deposits with effect from 2nd January, 1998. This has adversely affected the liquidity and profitability of your company. Given the constraints under which your company has to operate, we can conclude at performance of your company was satisfactory. Your Directors have time and again approached the Reserve Bank of India to get your company registered and classified as Hire Purchasing & Leasing company. We expect that with the latest results as made available to you, we are quite confident that our plea will be favourbly considered by the Reserve Bank of India. We are also making efforts to get credit rating for your company from an approved credit rating agency. Once we achieve these twin obJectives,we will sail through the present disappointing phase and expect to present a better picture next year.
